Thanks for the nostalgia trip, Evan. I hope Austin hasn't hired an attorney yet to sue you for intentional infliction of emotional injury and invasion of privacy and copyrght.

Since so many of your readers may be too young to remember Teddy Bear, I'm providing the lyrics (by Mann-Low); also, click to get the guitar chord tablature. A great song to sing to a little sweetheart.

(words & music by mann-low)

(Let Me Be Your) TEDDY BEAR

Baby let me be,
Your lovin’ teddy bear
Put a chain around my neck,
And lead me anywhere
Oh let me be
Your teddy bear.

I don’t wanna be a tiger
Cause tigers play too rough
I don’t wanna be a lion
’cause lions ain’t the kind
You love enough.
Just wanna be, your teddy bear
Put a chain around my neck
And lead me anywhere
Oh let me be
Your teddy bear.

Baby let me be, around you every night
Run your fingers through my hair,
And cuddle me real tight

Evan

David: I received the appropriate permissions from Austin. As for being "too young to remember" Teddy Bear, speak for yourself: I'm way too young to remember it. Teddy Bear was released on 6/11/57; I was born in 1963. But the song is still played on the radio, and available on CDs -- I guess that's how I "remember" it.

David Giacalone

I was seven when it came out, Evan. I wonder how many of your readers listen to radio stations that play the song, or had parents who were wise enough to sing it to them.

Elvis was a fat junkie

Evan

jk: Yeah, but you might want to dig a little deeper. I recommend Peter Guralnick's biography of Elvis. The first volume is titled The Last Train to Memphis; the second is titled Careless Love. Everyone will find something to like in those books--even fat junkies!

In order to be the king you have to:
1. Write at leat one of your own songs.
2. Remain in rock and roll for at least more than 5% of your career.
3. Don't do the equivalent of "lip syncing" on the guitar.
4. Don't offer to be J. Edgar Hoovers spy on teenagers.
5. Don't be manufactured by record companies.
As you can see.......Elvis does not qualify to be the King of Rok and Roll.
ELVIS SUCKS

Kathy

I remember the day they broke in the program on tv and announced elvis died,and it took me a long time to believe that he did drugs,but it would be understandable if he faked his death,and I wouldn't be surprised if he had plastic surgery,so he could walk down the street like us,and look just like one of us.
